an unusual pentagon briefing that the timeline of events in libya as we now know them may be a far cry from what actually went on in benghazi. we're going to talk with pete leg seth about this new version of events is so troubling troubd where this story goes from here as it continues to unfold. >>> there are a growing number of reports out this week suggesting gun and ammunition sales are soaring in recent weeks, driven in part by a concern about a second term for president obama and that it could mean new restrictions on the rights of gun owners. trace gallagher is looking looko this phenomenon. hello, trace. >> reporter: hey, shannon. the most reliable way to track gun sales is by looking at the number of background checks being conducted. when president obama took office, the number of background checks went up by 1.5 million, they have steadily gone up since then. 2009, 11.4 million background checks, 11.5 in 2010. then look at the jump, 13 million background checks in 2011, and so far this year 14.8 million background checks and a lot of gun owners say in the past four or fife days --
for the military. >> reporter: the dreaded sequestration would double the $500 billion in cuts the pentagon is already planning to make over the next decade. defense secretary panetta has not minced words. >> if sequestration goes into effect it's a disaster for national defense. >> reporter: the strategy of pivoting away from the wars in iraq and afghanistan towards the pacific and an emerging chinese superpower would come undone. >> all of that can go to hell if this congress doesn't face up and deal with the issue of sequestration. >> reporter: in this letter to senators panetta warned by the time sequestration was over the u.s. would have the smallest ground force since 1940, smallest navy since 1915 and smallest air force ever. a bleak prediction which ignores the quantum leap in weapons technology. as the president pointed out in the debate no other country comes close. >> we spend more on our military than the next ten countries combined. >> reporter: sequestration would not change that. according to the center for strategic and budgetary assessment it's not the size of the cuts, abo
at the pentagon for us. good morning. tell us, what is the status of the investigation right now? >> well, good morning, alina. "the new york times" is now reporting this morning that the investigation actually began some months ago. but, again, the questions continue to mount. it wasn't until election night that the director of national intelligence, james clapper, was informed that this was all going on. the white house informed the next day,and the president the day after that. so how you have an fbi investigation, which whatever went on did involve looking into the matters of general david petraeus, your cia director, and the president isn't informed. this is one of the key questions congress, the congressional committee's concerned, they weren't informed. so expect to see a lot more about this for the next many days. >> barbara, let's talk a little bit more about that. as you mentioned the white house wasn't notified until 5:00 p.m. on election night. the president wasn't told until the thursday after election day. house and senate intelligence committees weren't told until last week. i kn
their 2012 victory, in fact, a historical election for them. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr has more on the veterans ready to take their seat in congress. >> reporter: republican tom cotton a veteran of iraq and afghanistan was one of the big winners tuesday. seizing the fourth congressional district seat in arkansas. >> i don't know what committeely be assigned to ultimately, but i want to play a central role in helping to guide america's foreign policy in the next congress. >> reporter: cotton a grad school graduate was in the 101st airborne division. nine veterans of these wars have won congressional seats, seven republicans and two democrats. >> this is definitely a historical election for the iraq and afghanistan veterans. there will be more in the next congress, twice as many in the next congress as there are currently. >> reporter: seth lynn has a program training vet verans running for office. he says that iraq and afghanistan veterans may finally have found their political voice. >> i think that a lot of people have come home really established themselves in their commu
obama wanted. so would to the pentagon and asked for three plants. -- three plans. they stonewalled him for three months. he went back to the pentagon and said, where is the plan? they said, we have one for you, but the others will take a while. so they kind of boxed him into the strip search. >> and petraeus' role in that? >> he is the one that boxed him in. he got he bought -- what he wanted, but it was a failed policy. >> this weekend is important not only for one pakistani girl, but for an entire nation. talk about how this fits into the story of the u.s. presence in afghanistan and pakistan. >> this girl was shot in the head by one of the taliban in pakistan because she had become well known for having this advocacy of girls' education. the swat valley was a place where the taliban briefly took in 2009. the pakistani military, partially under the pressure from the obama administration, went into swat and expel the taliban largely. of course, they are still around, and one of them shot the girl. she survived. she will have a slow but successful recovery. saturday was a day to celebr
admiral curtis was serving at the pentagon. >> the whole building shook and then we got word that a plane had hit the pentagon. so we started evacuating everyone to make sure they were all right. >> my first phone call is from someone that they're safe, your husband helped us out of building and made sure we're all secure and say. >> reporter: 36 years have gone by since curtis played on this gridiron. navy marine corps stadium has been revamped many times over since then, but what hasn't changed is his love of service personified on veterans day. >> i've always felt that football, athletics gives you the drive and competitiveness and pride. >> reporter: pride, it's why veterans day is so meaningful to him today. in annapolis, dave owens, 9 sports. >> now the kurts have one more daughter at the naval -- the curtiss have one more daughter at the naval academy in the class of 2016. >>> still ahead tonight 9 news now has learned of some changes in the 2 , for d.c.'s emergency -- works for d.c.'s emergency services plus -- >> reporter: this is bruce johnson at john glenn, the main boat in

said about this. he's a very respected figure, a former counsel to the pentagon, a former assistant attorney general. and he said, basically, assuming the news reports are right, the fbi might have had a duty to report its month-along investigation, related to security breaches, concerning the cia director, quite a while ago. the fbi investigation might have been primarily a law enforcement matter, until very recently, and thus not subject to reporting requirements. though it seems like any investigation into security breaches of the cia director's computer system or communications by definition implicates counterintelligence. david, i want to go back to you. you're speaking about how it goes up the chain of command within the intelligence bureaus. but a separate question, under the law, if we're serious about the law, and the fbi is supposed to be, there's a separate question over, as soon as this moves from being a criminal harassment investigation to an intelligence one, whether senator feinstein and others, as they've said, should have been informed. >> well, i think, clearly, t
, but the pentagon faces potentially critical budget cuts as congress prepares to take on deficit reduction in the fiscal cliff negotiations. retired u.s. army colonel jack jacobs is an msnbc contributor and recipient of the medal of honor for his service in vietnam. it's a great honor to have you here. >> thank you. >> despite resigning, the plot keep thinkckening. >> there will continue to be disclowe schurs about what the affair was all about and how it was discovered and what role the fbi played and what role the white house played and the possibility of delaying the announcement. there will be plenty of speculation, but in terms of an effect on the cia, on the mission, i don't think it will have any affect whatsoever. it's a large organization with lots of missions. the man who is currently the acting director and very, very able. eventually he will be replaced and there will be somebody who will be nominated to take his place and petraeus' place, but the cia will carry on doing what it needs to do and being part of the overall intelligence apparatus of the american government. >> sure
in spending over the next ten years for the pentagon? what's a reasonable part of the deal for na? >> i think a reasonable one is actually about the amount in the sequestration. that's a little bit less than what the boles-simpson commission had. they had about $750 billion. if you take a salmi slice cut like the sequestration bill does, you will harm the military. if you're able to say, wait a moment, maybe we don't need quite as many submarines and we need a sensor system and you can change how we are to the systems we're procuring, then you're able to do this decrease in spending if you put it in the right capability. that's the enormous change that we have to have in our military. look, the navy dpom natuominate commons of the seas and the air force dominates the commons of the air. we have to dominate the commons of cyberspace. look what we did to iran. when we take down centrifuges that enrich the terrain yum. by one virus we stymied them for a while. imagine if we read everything out there and the other side knows that we can do that kind of damage. that is what is very difficult to br
. cnn's barbara starr is following that story from the pentagon. good morning. >> good morning, soledad. well, look, at least at this point, there's no indication publicly of a national security breach. but that doesn't mean the questions aren't growing. lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are questioning the timing behind the revelation. house majority leader eric cantor said an fbi employee told him in october about the petraeus affair. by that time an fbi investigation was already under way. the fbi told the director of national intelligence james clapper on election night, according to a senior u.s. intelligence official. the white house says it was notified the day after the election, and the president the following day. that doesn't make sense to house homeland security chairman peter king. >> this seems to have been going on for several months yet now it appears they're saying that the fbi didn't realize until election day that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't add up. >> "the new york times" reports the fbi actually started its investigation late this summer. the h
until now has been seen by many as the woman behind the man. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr spent some time with holly petraeus. barbara, first off, what kind of a woman is holly petraeus? >> well, as a correspondent covering military affairs, i have run into mrs. petraeus professionally. she is a formidable woman, and quite an expert in her own right, ted. she works in the area of consumer finance protection for military families. she worked for a long time for the better business bureau. now works inside the federal government and her area is predatory lending, financial practices, financial health for young military families. this is something i've talked to her about. this is something she is an expert in. she a few weeks ago gave a briefing here in the pentagon to the press corps. she may not be known much outside of washington, but inside the circle of military families, very, very highly respected. >> yeah, i read today she was one of those generals' wives that was accessible and part of the regular folks living day to day. today we heard that david petraeus wants to
to say they do not know the answer yet but plan to find out. pentagon officials did not return a call. congressional investigators also want to know more about classified documents found on her computer. she reportedly said they did not come from petraeus. there are questions about whether taxpayers paid for a trip to paris. there is much more to be looked at in this story. we will have much more on this coming up. >> we will have much more on the petraeus scandal including who knew what and when it coming up on abc 7 news at 6. >> coming up on abc 7 news at 5 but a worker for it that could jeopardize a big black friday sale. -- a worker threat. >> the man behind the voice of elmo accused of a serious crime. how this is effecting "sesame street." >> >> as we honor veterans and an old, we are marking the 30th anniversary of the vietnam memorial wall, the symbol of the darkened by some of war. >> they're reading of all the names of about wall, only the fifth time it has ever been done. greta kreuz talks about how it is helping some to keel. >> for 65 hours, they read the names. >> rober
on that night. general joseph dunford is stepping down at the marine corps's second in command. the pentagon calls both moves routine successions. also the navy has replaced charles gauuette due to recent allegations of, quote, inappropriate leadership judgment not otherwise described. there's been some tension between the state department, the cia and the pentagon in recent weeks as they've worked in the words of one official to sync up their benghazi time lines. thursday the closed door hearing intelligence officials will show senators benghazi's surveillance video with a timeline for the first time. >> sharyl, thanks. retired general richard myers is cbs news' military security analyst and former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> general myers, general petraeus served under you. you know this man well. should he have resigned? is this the kind of thing that a military man should resign who is no longer serving the military, but at the cia? >> certainly if he were still in the military, yes, he should have resigned. i think anybody in charge
will help direct you through there. 395 at the pentagon. traffic flowing freely continuing out towards the 14th street bridge. traffic flowing freely there and 50 headed past eastern, all lanes are open. that's a check of your fox 5 on time traffic. >> bomb shell dropped in the political world over the weekend. ci ah, director david patraeus resigns. raises a lot of questions and stands the impact of major foreign policy issues facing the obama administration. what happens in the deadly attack in libya. joining us this morning deputy white house editor for politico. good morning. good to see you. >> good morning. >> whenever we see stories like this come out, scandal really, those details leak out. what do we know? >> he was having an affair. the woman involved was his buyographer and appears to been prompted into threatening e-mails he stoent another woman who was working down in florida and that there was some level of threat that she had given that had been so great the fbi started investigating her e-mail and in investigating her e-mail found all of these messages back and forth th
this problem. and then, you know, a week later we screened at the pentagon hosted by the u.s. army surgeon general. she said this film will propel us to change the way we practice medicine in this country. that's powerful stuff. what i'm most optimistic it about is that we -- i don't know if we can wait for change to happen in washington. i don't know if we can wait for national change. what i'm most optimistic about is change lapping at a local level, compluent by compluent, hospital by hospital, clinic by clinic. >> final clip for our discussion, dr. aaron martin and also dr. nissen from the cleveland clinic. >> from the commercials on television, why wait? we can just take a pill right now. >> when i watch the networks, half the ads are for pharmaceutical agents. that is not true in canada, france, or germany. the only other country, by the way is new zealand. new zealand and america are the only countries where you can advertise prescription drugs. what does that do? the ads always end with the same phrase, "ask your dr." and they do. and doctors wanting to please their patients will o
, actually, to a private sector led economy, reintegrate ourselves with pentagon into central asia, we don't see much progress in this front, and on the issue of transition to the security responsibility to the afghans, really, to take speedometer of the fight up on themselves because there is no shortage of courage or skill in afghan. the afghan should be fighting the fight themselves. u.s. should get out of the combat role in afghanistan. that's good for afghanistan and the u.s., and also, it makes limited use presence in afghanistan sustainable if no u.s. soldier dying in afghanistan. therefore, in this front also, there's not many progress or cooperation by friends in pakistan. we very much would like, actually, the afghan people, particularly the government, see improvement on that. just to end on very short comments on what some of the distinguished panelists have mentioned, i totally expect that the issue of not having any evidence on bin laden be in islamabad. hard to imagine someone hiding in west point in the united states and in a businessman, friewntly speak the language, that

's senate hearing on the tedly attack in libya? barbara starr is at the pentagon. barbara, general petraeus was to be a primary witness in that closed door hearing. what now? >> well, by all accounts he will not appear at this week's hearing. the man who will is mike morrell, his deputy and ci airks, now essentially the acting director of the agency. mr. morrell, a highly respected intelligence professional, has been with the agency for many, many years. would know all the same information that david petraeus knows. but the question on the table, carol, is whether that's going to be politically enough for congress. are they so irritated about this entire matter that they will subpoena petraeus in the weeks ahead and compel him to come testify about what he knows about the benghazi attacks? >> barbara starr reporting live for us at the pentagon this morning. this affair is baffling on so many levels. how could a man with such a pristine reputation show such awful judgment? and how could this woman have such unprecedented access? the answer may be as simple as one slippery step at a time. lis
